Amsterdam is full of small bistros and restaurants. This was a spontaneous find as we were walking along. Pleasant pit stop for food and refreshments. Has a very distinctive dutch character.

Walking the De Jordaan neighborhood, around streets of Nine, stopped in for a snack. Nibbled on beef Balls, made fresh, crispy and piping hot. The meatball was good, Bratwurst a tad better. They brew their own beer. Courteous and efficient service. They do not accept...More

They were very slow and not kind. The "Kroketts" were frozen inside, the salad had passed the expiration date and didnt had any dressing, and the bread were sandwich loafs. Disgusting! Muy lentos y rancios atendiendo. Las croquetas estaban congeladas por dentro, la ensalada estaba...More

This is a fun place, somewhat off the beaten path in a basement at the edge of the Jordaan neighborhood, and truly authentic. They serve traditional Dutch cuisine (which is not too exciting) but know how to dress it up, so it all tastes good....More
